Sunscreens: some good advice during the winter ski holidays
Sunburn is never the best memory you can hope for when you go on a mountain vacation. Yes, know that the sun also invites itself in the altitudes. And it is all the more dangerous in these high places than on the beach. So, you must be well equipped.
